Don't know why, but strolling down the streets of Paia, I feel like I walk back in time to the 1970s and yet forward into good whole living. Slow pace, earthy folk, good organic eats, and an appreciate for the arts. Makawao (painting above) is another great little artist town that doesn't seem to have lost it's flower-power flavor. Both towns, I believe, have histories of being areas where hippie-types from the mainland came to settle, merging their values of community, artistry, and free-spirited living with the already laid-back subculture of Maui island life. I like it! Two of my favorite towns to visit on Maui.
